Potable Water


The purpose of this Scope of Work is to provide protective measures to the potable water distribution system, in Southport and Panama City, Bay County, Florida, funded through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) DR-4399-018-R, as approved by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (Division) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 


As a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program project, the Sub-Recipient proposes to provide protection to the potable water distribution system in Southport and Panama City, Florida, 32401, 32404, 32405, and 32409. Coordinates (30.295327, -85.643904). 

The scope is for Phase I only, which includes but is not limited to surveying, engineering, design, plans preparation, permitting, and bidding for the proposed project, for Phase II approval. No construction activities for this project have been approved.

When completed, the Sub-Recipient shall provide deliverables for Phase II review of the following proposed activities. 

Phase II's proposed scope of work shall include improving the potable water distribution system of the County by adding redundancy to the network, to improve its serviceability and functionality. The project consists of two zones; Zone A, located along Highway 77A in Southport, shall include the installation of approximately 260 LF of 10" PVC water main in steel casing across two locations directionally bored under the roadway. Zone B covers an area of approximately 1.8 square miles and shall include the installation of more than 9,500 LF of potable water main piping, including the required fittings and appurtenances for system looping. Additionally, the project shall include approximately 36 isolation gate valves. The multiple cross-connections between the two transmission lines shall provide component redundancies throughout the system to better allow for isolation of localized segments should breakage occur and bypassing the flow around the isolated area while the breakage is addressed. The project shall mitigate the risk of potable water service losses to the impacted population, allowing them to recover faster. 

The project shall be designed to provide protection against a 500-year storm event. Activities shall be completed in strict compliance with Federal, State, and Local applicable Rules and Regulations.   

The Grant is also funded in part through Community Development Block Grant Funds Project M0061 through the Department of Florida Commerce and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
